Major League Gaming and the Korean eSports Association have announced an exclusive multi-year global partnership which will merge the western and Korean StarCraft competitions. As part of the collaboration, KeSPA players will compete in US MLG events for the first time in eSports history. The partnership kicks off during the MLG Spring Championship in Anaheim, CA on June 9 where KeSPA Pro players will compete in a StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty tournament. Participants from the top KeSPA teams will be selected and are to be announced in the coming weeks. The exposition match and the entire Spring Championship will be broadcast live online via MLG. The Spring Championship runs June 8-10. Thanks, Talkar.
